6:16 am
we're watching this one system just coming up the east coast a little bit as opposed to going out to sea but it will continue north and east. when it leaves it will take the showers and clouds and as the sun builds in for the afternoon that means we will be in pretty good shape here. not only for this afternoon, but right for the weekend. it will be a little coastal that's going to try to form later sunday into monday but i think that's going to be far enough south and east it will go offshore that we'll see if you if any problems between now and then -- few if any problems between now and thanksgiving. the morning clouds and showers east and afternoon sun today. tonight 36. but 28 in the cold spots. tomorrow 55. sunny and cool. sunday looks pretty good too. maybe a few more clouds 54. so for both football games the terps, the redskins, any other plans you have outside, weather should cooperate. then look still pleasant 55 wednesday and 61 on thanksgiving. 6:16. time for monika and timesaver traffic. good morning, good morning everybody. well, if you're planning to head southbound on i-270 yep,

6:33 am
idea of what happened. lawmakers were first shown cell phone video of the attack. it revealed the initial attack was not well planned and in part was inspired by televised scenes of protestors storming the american embassy in cairo because of an anti-muslim video running on the internet. others seemed to be more interested in looting. it left the consulate in flames. the surviving americans then retreated to a cia safe house a mile away. but then, this was a four hour lull in the fighting which gave the rescue team a chance to get over to benghazi, but ten minutes later, the attackers brought in mortar. they started the assault. this was captured on security cameras and a drone overhead. more organized this time and deliberate. there were five rounds, two missed and three hit. >> number one, were mistakes made? guys we know mistakes were made and we've got to learn from that. and our membership asked some
6:34 am
very hard and very tough questions of our witnesses today. and we're going to continue to do that. >> reporter: well, petraeus will be appearing today at the hearing but lawmakers say they are focusing solely on the attacks in benghazi. the hearings will continue today on day two can then it will continue to next week. there will be two more hearings then a public hearing where we can hear a little more of the details and the some of the classified information. back to both of you. >> all right. with that update from the hill. israeli officials had suspended their offensive in the strip because of the brief visit by egypt's premier. however israel responded firing on hamas commander's home because they say the palestinians broke the truce. three israelis and 18 palestinians were killed earlier in cross border attacks with the israeli military and
6:35 am
hamas. fighter jets drops the bombed on the target in gaza this morning. it was the heaviest fighting in the region in four years. the largest oil spill in u.s. history is leading to the largest criminal fine in u.s. history. yesterday bp, british petroleum agreed to pay $4.5 billion in connection to the april 2010 exblog that killed 11 workers and released an estimated 205 million gallons of oil into the gulf of mexico. another federal program was supposed to hit a deadline today. state governments were supposed to decide if they were going to set up health insurance exchanges. well, they now have an extension. it's going to be december 14th. those exchanges if they go into place will let small businesses access online to a marketplace to find more affordable health care. d.c., maryland and 14 other states already established these exchanges. virginia will not be creating one and 13 states still have not decided yet. 6:35. a special your money report
6:36 am
from jessica doyle. where are you jess? >> i am still out on the bus. there is the warby parker class trip bus traveling the country and bringing $99 frames really hip frames to different cities around the country. of course they are now in washington which they say is their favorite city yet. joining me now is co-founder neil who's going to help me find the perfect of glasses, what am i going to be looking for? >> just positions work best. if you have a particularly round best you want square frames and vice versa. we're charging $95 and you can take a little more risk than typically. you should have that as many as you have shoes or handbags. >> i completely agree with this, when are we going to start? >> the sloan flames, this is from -- frames, this is from our holiday collection. >> i will freeze three on. you guy -- try these on.
6:37 am
you guys also have a social mission. you remember here yesterday -- you were here yesterday talking about altruism and corporations. >> we think that business should be sort of designed to involve problems no. create them. so -- not create them. so for us we had that experience walking into an optical shop and being really excited about a pair of glasses but walking out having spent the same thing we dit on the iphone. warby parker was designed to solve that problem and also sort of bradder problems. when you look at sort of the world there's almost a billion people that don't have access to glasses, even at $95 they can't afford them. for every pair we sell we try to donate one. i partnered with a nonprofit that trains plane and women in the developing -- men and women in the developing world. something a different when you treat somebody like a value conscious consumer rather than a needy beneficiary.
6:38 am
>> i think that's fantastic. you also are thinking of opening a store in washington, d.c.. fingers crossed. what's the lates on that? >> we're still looking for a place, we think the future of retail is sort of this intersection of breast cancers and mortar and e -- bricks and mortar and e commerce. most of the sales are through but we want people to physically interact with us on the bus. >> i like these i forgot the name of those. >> the preston. >> i think these are the ones guys, back to you in the studio. >> and i see our guests are also taking advantage of war by -- there too. get some new shades. coming up a remarkable story about beating the odds. >> every once in a while you hear a story of a person that's overcome some horrible circumstances and succeeds. you don't watt to miss this story -- want to miss the story. we'll be -- this story. we'll be right back.

breaks than this i believe as we get midday. and in fact i think these icons should reverse themselves. we'll get to about 55 with a 51- degree reading again at 5:00 and the sun will have already set. sprinkles you see them, some light showers generally across areas to our south and east. across calvert county, across the bay, we've seen some more of the light showers scattered about now around queenstown to easton to cambridge then southern maryland still some showers, back into the northern neck and all of this moving off toward the northeast. be around for a few more hours and the afternoon certainly looks better than this morning. especially down this. 39 in rockville. 34 lovettsville. that's the cold spot locally with 38 in fairfax and if they don't get the thing fixed in burke i'm going to pull it off the map. with 39 in arlington. right now outside on the michael & son weather camera, mostly cloudy skies this morning. to overcast here. you're looking at tysons corner. 42 with very light wind so not really any windchill.
6:46 am
42. the humidity at 65%. so we've got the one little disturbance coming across the region this morning. you see the showers with it. pulling away from north carolina. across areas in the northern neck. southern maryland. the eastern shore. we'll get rid of that and sunshine will come some sunshine this afternoon. and then the weekend actually looks pretty decent. that coastal storm? still going to form but i think far enough south and east won't be much of a problem. 55 today with some afternoon sun. some areas in the low 50s north and west and 36 tonight with upper 20s in the cold spots. tomorrow 55. sunday 54. so for the terps' game, the redskins' game, looks all right. dry weather through thanksgiving eve and right now, turkey day for that turkey trot or the bowls could be over 60 degrees. michael? thanks howard. rising and soaring above unthinkable adversity. the children's defense fund honored ten teenagers debra alfarone sat down with one of them and spoke about the horrifying event she used to empower her life rather than
